yes please Geoff, love looking at properties - not that I'm nosy or anything of course!

Pam, those look like lovely apples - I shall be along with my basket shortly!

Becks, how is Jess today? Your neighbours sound lovely - a bit like Kate's neighbours. I'm lucky with most of my neighbours - apart from the cat stealing leylandii planting ones!

Glyn have a lovely day in York!

Jean, lovely hibiscus!

I agree Gary, I take best before dates as a guideline. Some things are ok well after that date and others aren't - smell is a good indicator!  

Not sure if its my internet connection being slow today or the site but things seem to be taking a while to load.

Still very grey here.

 Hello All

Geoff have you been to the doctors yet? we did nag!

Well the worms survived - and each Cub took 20 worms for their wormeries - some got very enthusiastic about it and started naming them, but one little boy wouldn't touch them so only had 5 worms - he didn't want any more. There were quite a few left over so they're heading to my compost.

I thought the Choir was a bit disappointing as well - but I'm hoping the competition at the end will be good.

Jo, perhaps they said male pee because of the ease of delivery as opposed to us ladies - however I now have a 'she-wee'!!

Gary thanks for the science, I will never flush it again now - its a precious commodity!! Wonder if I can persuade OH to take part in an experiment??

Tonight at Cubs we will actually get to put the worms in the wormeries - however I'm not sure how many will survive!! Spare ones will be going into my dalek composter where I'm sure they will be very happy! We are also growing peas and beans in plastic bags - science experiment. Waste of good seed if you ask me!

Oh no, I now have a mental image of me trying to 'water' the plants at the plot!!

So I'm guessing it doesn't matter if its male or female?

I have survived the M25 and M23 unscathed, and am pleased to report no traffic hold-ups! A rarity I have to say. The new services at Cobham looks interesting but I didn't stop to investigate - maybe next time!

On the subject of pee (sorry everyone) I have heard that its a good compost activator - but some people say it has to be from blokes and some people say from ladies is better - does anyone know? Does it even make a difference??

Jo I might manage half a tray of tomatoes when I pick mine later. I'm surprised to have got any actually as most plants were blighted. A few against the front wall in pots managed to survive, but they were the ones I shoved in later, and have actually done better than the others.

I'm here.

Kate, that sounds disgusting! But thanks for reminding me about the hyacinths - I realised I haven't done anything with them yet!

Hello Caroline ~~ (am waving)

Lovely and sunny here, and I'm off on an errand now - which involves the M25.

I may be some time!

That looks remarkably like my loft! Don't think there are any small boys up there though - and if there are how did they get in??

Jo, I just don't have time to make my own C cake (or pud), although I have a lovely recipe - and its only OH and I who eat it so we just buy a little one.

Hello Inka - will try and send some pain in your direction - it must be getting very difficult. Glad to hear you're preparing for winter. Won't discuss Downton as I don't want to give away any spoilers!!

Geoff - the college issue is still not resolved but I sense a parting of the ways is about to occur. I will be disappointed that he couldn't stick out this last year but in other ways it will be a relief - one less thing to worry about!

'Orange' sauce is tomato and marscapone sauce - which was served with spinach and ricotta tortellini. Yummy. This was followed by a large slice of the huge chocolate cake I made, with chocolate fudge icing, and flake and chocolate buttons on top. I even put candles on it!
